I created a GPO for folder re-direction on to a folder named homefolder on the server.
for all users it is working correctly, except for on.

I checked the profile and it's correct.
folder pathEveryone is set to same.

When I do a gpupdate /force on the workstation I get this kind of error.
gpupdate /force
when I look to see the mapping it shows like this for everyone
user01(\\dc\homefolder) (Y:)
for this user it shows like this
mapped drive
Anyone has any idea as to how to fix this???

Thanks

I would right click on the Y drive an hit Disconnect. After, run the gpupdate /force again and reboot.

It looks like the user has a drive mounted as Y already.

If you still have the same result after this, open cmd and paste the results of the net use command.
